, a e treaty with russia, two women appointed to the supreme court including the first hispanic supreme court justice in this nation's history. all of that was all accomplished in the first two years of his presidency. and then came the 2010 midterms and the house went to the republicans. and they pledged to oppose everything the president did. that logger heads between the the house republicans and the white house brought us to crises like the debt ceiling fight where republicans refused to raise the debt ceiling even they voted to do so under republican presidents. they refused to do it under this president and brought about the almost unthinkable downgrading of the country's credit rating. even opposition that entractable cannot stop a presidency in its tracks. colin powell's endorsement more than a week ago put part of this legacy of this presidency as in sync as it could get. >> i also saw the president get us out of one war, start to get us out of a second war and didn't get us into any new wars. >> president obama did get all american combat troops out of iraq by the end

u.s. and russia, and how these three played geopolitically behind the scenes. >> when i saw the title of this, it makes me think of howard. i know you have done a lot of research. how important, a geeky history question, but how important was that back to forming the guts of what you have done? it's probably the most pom lar and influential a.m. tern tiff history of the united states ever written. >> it's a different kind of book than howard's book. we are both friends with howard and he was very excite d about this project. we miss him and we're building on him but in a different way. howard was talking about social forceses have shaped america. he's talk iing about domestic issues more. what we're talking about is, first of all, the american empire and, secondly, the rise of the national security state. so in some ways howard's book and our book are perfect complements, the two sides that tell the entire story together. >> i'm wondering if, you know, one of the points of this is to say u.s. presidents especially in wartime have trampled on the constitution and international la
